Rainy Kite Weekend at Lago di Como

Rainy Kite Weekend at Lago di Como

Another kite weekend trip to Lago di Como! We were not so much on the lucky side with he weather and wind this time. On top of that, our car broke down on the Italian motorway in eh middle of a tunnel. We rolled unbelievable 2.8 km the slightly downhill motorway and could reach a gas station exit! The car engine is gone…. and the car was transported back to Switzerland, while we were on a rental car – sometimes it’s good to have a road assistance insurance!
Besides the car problems, we still got to kite two days.
Gisi got up and running well! Not sure if Chris was violating some Italien laws, by flying a kite, driving the motor boat and making a call at the same time……

IBM Kite Talents!

After months of persuasion, I finally talked a fearless bunch of IBMers into kite surfing! We spent a great weekend at Lago di Como and the three guys took a two day course. They all turned out to be quite talented and – who knows – might continue to get proficient!

First weekend this year on Lake Como. Great conditions and great company – men only with Thom, Flavian and Markus. Superb wind on Saturday, stron 12m fully powered, 4 hour session! Thom’s jumps are getting higher and higher, Flavian ripping with the Bandit and Markus fully in charge! A low pressure system on Sunday killed the wind unfortunately.
Looking forward to the next weekend at 414 Kiting.
